16 Week Update

We had our 16 week check-up this morning and everything looks good! After a minor blood pressure concern {all is well - I apparently don't do well with the automatic blood pressure machines}, we heard the little one's heartbeat - about 161 bpm! We have our next appointment set for February 8th @ 9:00 AM. This will be our big ultrasound and we should find out if we are having a boy or a girl! We are super excited now and ready to get to 20 weeks! Here is a fun little quiz that some others have been using.

How far along? 16 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 1 lb gain
Maternity clothes? Sort of. Some maternity jeans but everything else is regular clothes.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep? Ok. Working on sleeping on my side. Slowly getting used to it.
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat again!
Movement: Nope, not yet.
Food cravings: cheese, yogurt and lemonade
Gender: Don't know yet!
Name: I think we have a boy and a girl name picked out but nothing is official yet.
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Sleeping on my stomach!
Milestones: 16 week appointment and all is good!

hahahaha this is so cute! I love how your craving cheese and yogurt which I can see you eating, but the lemonade makes me laugh! What happened to the sweet tea? hehe. I wish I could go with you and hear the heartbeat too. =( Don't forget to send me pictures of that baby bump grow! Love you!

i craved lemons with Micah... maybe it's a boy! Are you guys sharing the names or keeping it a surprise?

Lemonade has been my thing this pregnancy too...I am glad that your appointment went well. You know that if you and Mike follow the APC pattern, this one is a girl!! I am so happy for y'all.

Love, Christy

Linds - I think we are at least keeping names a secret until we find out if it is a boy or a girl. Then we'll re-evaluate. :)
Kate - If I have wanted anything sweet it has been a drink (sweet tea or lemonade). But I have been liking the sour taste in lemons.
